interim senator. should that law be changed? >> you know, just so you know, the primary is december 8th. the democratic primary is december 8th so that is even sooner and that would not change. the interim appointment would not change that. i know that the governor and the legislature is mulling that over. when they come back over labor day, they will look, i'm sure, at the pros and cons of doing that. there's advantage of having two senators full-time in the senate and that is really going to be the legislature's call and will not affect this race or the dates of this race, though. >> massachusetts attorney general martha coakley, a democrat, having thrown her hat in the ring, thank you very much for joining us and best of luck. >> thank you. have a great labor day. >> and you. we are watching wall street this morning as investors react to the august jobs report. next hour, we're joined live by one of president obama's top economic advisers christine ma roamer and how this is helping women in the work force. that is next on msnbc.
